Love & Life

I just loved the sketch at Mojo Monday this week so much that I had to make a second card using it.  My daughter made this flower for me a year or so ago and it's been sitting in my bits and pieces stash just waiting to be used.  I saw it there and it became the basis for this non-traditional Valentine's Day color scheme.  I created my own background using a grid stamp from Simon Says Stamp and Verve's "Surely Goodness".
The white circle the sentiment is stamped on was also in my bits in pieces stash, so two items used up on this card.  Yeay!!

Challenges:
Mojo Monday #433--sketch

Word Art Wednesday #219--anything goes with uplifting sentiment
Mod Squad--hearts & flowers
Art Impressions #177--Love, love, love
Time Out Challenge #49--Love is the flower you've got to let grow (quote)
Creative Knockouts #12--love is in the air
Aud Sentiments #148--use a love sentiment
Brown Sugar Challenge #184--Valentine/Love

Supplies:
Stamps: Verve "Surely Goodness" and "Text Objects"; Simon Says Stamp "Grid Background"
Dies: Verve "Sprightly Sprigs"; Spellbinders "Classic Circles, large" and "Tear Drop Circle"

You know that you have accomplished a great deal, when you can use up beautiful pieces on a completed card. I love the background that you made too. You non traditional colors for a Valentine are awesome. Good luck, and thanks for joining us at the Mod Squad this week.
